“They didn’t get much tougher than this….other than Tuesday v the Clarets!…”but we will need all we have got and more to get anything out of this. They are a very decent side and we do not have a good record against them at the Den. They turned us over in the cup and they sit 15 points above us and 7 points clear of the third placed team in the Championship. Barring a major disaster they look a good bet for automatic promotion. They did have a blip midweek with a loss against Boro and their manager was sent to the stands for complaining about their third goal. Regardless they are a tough nut to crack and this will be a real test for us to see whether we have got what it takes.”
“A tough game but winnable. Will be a very good test for us and whilst a win would be most welcome a loss not the end of the world in this highly competitive and crazy league.
There fans seem to think that the season is catching up with them and taking it’s toll. Tired and leggy is the consensus. We’ve had a days rest compared to them, their manager banned from the touchline and without a win on the road since December.
They needed an injury time goal to nick a point at Qpr and got shut out at Rotherham for a point. Should be another bumper crowd and i see no reason why we can’t beat them.”
“We’ve recently lost and drawn to 2 teams on a very good run 1-0 to Middlesbrough in a very tight game and who have just beaten Sheffield United 3-1 and a 1-1 draw with Sunderland who have just thrashed QPR 3-0 so no reason not to go into the game against SU with a positive attitude. We’re not playing Man. City.”
“They are definitely beatable. Watching them the other night, Boro out passed them and they had no answer.
They are physical but we can match that I’m sure. Hutch would have relished this one had he been fit.”
“Watch how boro beat them.by keeping the ball on the floor and passing round them , our passing leaves a lot to be desired at times but hoofng balls against them will not work , let’s hope we can do the business Saturday”
“Its obviously going to be tough as they look to bounce back after Boro nailed them”
“Every club goes through a bad run, lets hope SU started theirs on Wednesday”
“One of those games when we do what we do best- tear up the form book and give them a bloody nose. Potentially!”
” we all know that against the bigger teams we seem to get results”
“Sheffield have pacey wingers on either Flank. That N’doye can cause havoc given half a chance. “
“Will have to combat their pacey midfield /attack, so Shack could be a good move. We need to press from the start and not allow Archer, N’diaye, Berg and that other little c**t if he plays any time”
“I watched both FA Cup ties v Wrexham, both games Wrexham was really attacking and Sheff Utd didn’t know what to do with themselves.”
“I personally think Sheff Utd are at the beginning of a mid season wobble, and will be worried about us and their string of games to come. We have to be at em on Saturday”
“would love to see us smash them at home and throw caution to the wind.
And they can stick their stainless steel up there arse.”
“Really need to score the first goal and see how they react. Looking at Sheffield forum, fans saying the team look tired and leggy and the season is taking it’s toll. They’ve had a cup run too and have Spurs next.”
“Their manager banned from the touchline, we must try and capitalise on these things”
“this is one of them teams i hate”
“As long as someone damages the professional northerner Sharp on Saturday I’ll be happy…”
